NERD Skincare Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing System Review

One day a bunch of lab nerds [as they lovingly call themselves] from Taiwan got together and decided to crush the cosmetic industry, plagued by false promises and overblown statements, by developing new science-based skin care solutions no one thought were possible. The company’s goal is to create ultimate beauty products by identifying and utilizing the best and most effective cutting edge scientific discoveries. That is how NERD Skincare was born, and nowadays you would be hard-pressed to find a skincare fanatic who hasn’t seen NERD’s viral acne system ad [the one with the girl “infecting” herself with acne bacteria and then using the system to clear it in days].

Today I won’t be talking about acne. I want to tell you about NERD Skincare Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing System ($180 for a set) which is the brand’s answer to your anti-aging woes. I had the opportunity to try the system for a few weeks and I feel like I have a pretty good idea about how it works and how my skin reacts to it.

So, the main schtick of NERD Skincare Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing System is preserving telomere length. Telomeres are literally those little things that decide how fast all cells in your body age, including your skin, your internal organs, etc. During the cell turnover cycle, telomeres separate and lose some of the length in the process. The shorter they are, the older you will look and feel. Does that make sense now?

Using the system is pretty straightforward: after cleansing with your favorite cleanser, massage some serum into the skin, followed by the moisturizer. Use with SPF 30 or higher during the daytime.

Swatches from Top to Bottom: NERD Skincare Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing Cocktail Serum, Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing Cocktail Cream.

Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing Cocktail Serum comes in a tall airtight bottle with a pump dispenser. The formula contains Snow Algae Powder, Apple Stem Cells, and PhytoCellTec Nunatak® derived from stem cells of the rare Alpine flower Saponaria pumila. This exclusive ingredient is said to activate the age-suppressing klotho gene, which suppresses the aging of the DNA. The serum has a liquid, very runny texture, and foams ever so slightly when it comes out of the pump [as you can see in the swatch]. There is no strong scent to it, in fact, I believe it’s totally unscented. The serum feels very pleasant on the skin, and works well with other non-NERD skincare products as well as makeup. As far as results, I believe it delivered on the promise to strengthen the skin barrier, because my skin does feel a little bit healthier and thicker.

You will LOVE it if:

  • You prefer skincare in pump dispensers.
  • You like lightweight, runny serums.
  • You are experiencing visible signs of aging.
  • Your skin barrier is compromised.
  • You prefer fragrance-free skincare.

You will HATE it if:

  • You are sensitive to any of the ingredients.
  • You only use vegan beauty products.

Ingredients: Aqua(Water), Placental Protein, Propanediol, Glycerin (and) Palmitoyl Dipeptide-10, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract , Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Cordyceps militaris Extract, Saponaria Pumila Callus Culture Extract, Coenochloris Signiensis Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract, Hydroxylated Lecithin, Allantoin, Soluble Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Carbomer, Sorbitan Isostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Trilaureth-4 Phosphate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate

Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing Cocktail Cream is a smoothing, hydrating, and repairing powerhouse balm that tackles multiple skin concerns at once. The formula is very rich and thick, with a little bounce to it. When I press on the cream with my finger, it springs back. Because of that, I normally use a clean spatula to scoop out the product, or a nail if I’m lazy. The formula contains the same 3 star ingredients as the serum – PhytoCellTec Nunatak®, Snow Algae Powder, Apple Stem Cells – as well as a ton of other extracts and butters, such as anti-inflammatory Baikal Skullcap, brightening Licorice root extract, wound-healing Squalane, and more [check the full list below]. The company specifically mentions that it’s not suitable for oily skin, and I tend to agree with that. One of the main reasons is the Avocado oil, which is fairly high on the ingredient list. Avocado oil contains a very high concentration of oleic acid, which is perfect for people with dry skin, because it helps thicken the sebum. Naturally, if you have oily skin already, thickening the oil is just going to clog the pores. I wrote an entire blog post about this, if you’re interested. My skin is combination, with dry cheeks and shiny t-zone, so I was still able to use this cream in moderation. It definitely felt comforting, like a blankie or a sweater for my face. I think it will be especially nice if you live somewhere with a cold or windy climate. We’ve been getting this kind of weather here in Michigan lately, and this moisturizer definitely helped protect my skin from the elements.

You will LOVE it if:

  • Your skin is experiencing a loss of elasticity.
  • You are experiencing visible signs of aging.
  • You have normal, dry, or combination skin.
  • Your skin is dehydrated.
  • You prefer buttery, oil-rich moisturizers.
  • You prefer fragrance-free skincare.

You will HATE it if:

  • You have oily skin. This is a very rich moisturizer.
  • You are sensitive to any of the ingredients.
  • Jar packaging is an issue.

Ingredients: Aqua(Water), Placental Protein, Propanediol, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Octyldodecanol (and) Irvingia Gabonensis Kernel Butter (and), Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Squalane, Coenochloris Signiensis Extract, Saponaria Pumila Callus Culture Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Cordyceps militaris Extract, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Avocado Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Omega Oil, Matricaria Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Secale Cereale (Rye) Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin, Phytosteryl/ Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate

BOTTOM LINE:

Overall, I enjoyed using the NERD Skincare Cellular Intelligence Time Postponing System ($180 for a set). I am using other products to combat fine lines, too, so it’s hard to single out either of these as the stars of the show. Actually, I think the retinoid I use at night is what’s doing most of the smoothing, but I don’t want to take away from how good this duo makes my skin feel. I do believe that the system is targeted more for people with more mature skin. I think someone in their 40s would benefit from these more than younger girls, just because the products are very nourishing and elasticizing, and a lot of it might be lost on younger skin that still has plenty of bounce to it. If you are younger, but you really want to try these, I would recommend trying the serum alone. It provides benefits that are useful for all skin types and conditions, both young and more mature. The moisturizer, in my opinion, is more suited for people who are experiencing a serious loss of skin elasticity, as well as those with fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness.

P.S.: Guys, I’m sorry that I only have 3 pictures in this blog post! I took more but my SD card became corrupted and I was only able to salvage these three.

  • Both of these sound great for me. The balm sounds especially soothing. Thanks for putting this on my radar!

  • Wow these both sound nice. I’m not sure if my skin can handle it though.

  • marciaf

    I love the name. I thought of The Big Bang Theory when you first described the company. I also like that these are fragrance free.

    In spite of having about a million skincare products, I would love to try this duo. If they weren’t so pricey, I’d run right out. I love the sound of the Time Postponing System because of the consistency of the cream. I think one of my favorite Shiseido products is similar to that consistency and I love it. Plus I could use something rich like this for my mature skin once the weather really gets cold.
